What is the Seaport Missing? A Grocery Store

Grocery store

Development in the Seaport is continuing rapidly, especially with the addition of new high-end apartment buildings attracting more and more residents.

However, the Seaport neighborhood is still missing one major component: a local grocery store.

The luxury new developments include Twenty Two Liberty, One Seaport Square and Pier 4 Condominium, all offering their own exclusive amenities and attracting new residents to the area.

Along with these there are a plethora of restaurants new and old, creating more of a neighborhood feeling with each new opening adding something to the area.

With General Electric’s world headquarters set to open soon and contribute to public space there is no end to the new developments reinventing this Boston hub.

As one of the fastest growing areas in Boston and with more housing being approved daily, the need for a grocery store continues to grow. As the substantial desire for this a grocery store in this space grows, we expect it wont be long now before the Seaport finally has one of their own.

Contact our advisors for more information about new developments in the Seaport and finding your new home today.

The proposal for the development includes a mix of studio to three bedroom apartments and parking spaces spread across multiple buildings.

A public hearing were held at the end of August and the developers will seek permits from the Cambridge Planning Board later this fall.

Dudley Square Tower Plans to Rise Above Roxbury

Developers Long Bay Management originally had plans to put a 25-story glass and steel building above the Institution for Savings in Roxbury. Dudley Square Tower would be located right across from the Dudley Square MBTA Station on Washington Street, so residents would have convenient transport links.

The revised version of the plan adds four more stories making it 29 in order to not only add more residential units, but incorporate above-ground parking and aid in paying for the development.

As well as the top floors of condos and apartments, the lower floors would provide retail and office space.

Plans for when Dudley Square Tower would actually be complete are yet to be confirmed, however developers have planned to file the proposal with the Boston Redevelopment Authority within the next month.
